Inside the resistance (in Iraq)
http://www.smh.com.au/articles/2003/08/15/1060936052309...

The United States likes to think that all it confronts in Iraq are a few die-hard Saddamists. But Paul McGeough meets a new guerilla movement with growing popular support.

1. Unbelievable
From the article

What seems clear is that the US has not begun to grasp the depth of Iraqi resentment and continues to feed the anger, as I note following my first meeting with Ahmed.

I have just returned to my Baghdad hotel, on Abu Nuwas Street which runs along the east bank of the Tigris, when a US Humvee roars past. Blaring from a block of six big speakers strapped to its rooftop is John Mellencamp's 1980s American anthem Pink Houses: Ain't that America? You and me! Ain't that America? Something to seeeee!

3. Bush Co. want americans via slanted news to believe..
it's just those pesky baathists refusing to come in and be our prisoners and terrioists groups who just want to martyr themselves. It's a shame that they have come to believe their own spin. Just in water pipeline somehow burst stops water in parts of Iraq NWI.
